LOST & FOUND is overflowing every day! Please help your child track his/her belongings and label all sweatshirts, sweaters, jackets and lunch bags.
HEALTH OFFICE NOTES:
LICE…now that we are back in school, just a reminder to check your child’s head daily for lice. Visit the Health page on our website for helpful instructions. If your child does have lice, they need to be treated and cleared by the nurse before they can return to school. We do not do mass head checks for lice – parents are responsible for checking their own children.
STREP: Strep throat is still going around Ridge. If your child complains of a sore throat and/or stomach ache, with or without fever, please have your child checked by a physician.
FEVER: We have had a number of children staying home with a fever. Your child needs to be fever-free (without medication) for 24 hours before they are permitted to return to school.
